Cooking with (Propane) Gas!

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

Wow – I had so much fun I had working with the folks at North Carolina Petroleum & Convenience Marketers at their recent convention. These people work hard and are INCREDIBLY family-focused. The event kicked off with a dinner where I got to provide a clean comedy show.

The next morning I appeared as “Barney Fife” to “arrest” a few unsuspecting attendees.

And the third day I delivered my productivity keynote “The Mayberry Method”.

All in all I was impressed with their drive and character. If you are in the Carolinas, make sure you get your propane from one of the dealers who are part of NCPCM!

“Rik did a fabulous job tailoring his presentation to fit our group. His unique ability to not only have our group laugh but also learn something in the process makes him one of the best speakers I have had. Our group has a tough job working in the customer service and support role, his presentation helped motivate them to do better in the workplace. I highly recommend Rik!”

“We had the privilege of having Rik at our Annual Conference where he performed and spoke both as himself and in character as Barney Fife. He did a great job interacting with our attendees outside of the sessions at which he spoke. They all enjoyed the added element his presence brought to the event. His keynote information was very insightful and we got many positive comments on having Rik at our Conference this year. He was a great person to work with both onsite and off and we thoroughly enjoyed having him at our event. Thanks Rik for making our Conference great!”

NCAT 2018 Rik Roberts

“Rik Roberts was exactly what our conference needed after two solid days of technical presentations and site tours. His “Mayberry Method” presentation had the right balance of information/strategies to combat wasteful work habits well blended with his wonderful sense of humor. Everyone had a great time with some great takeaways from his performance. He was an absolute professional and great to work with!”

Listen UP – Laugh it UP Hits Williamson County Young Professionals

RIK ROBERTS LISTEN UP LAUGH IT UP

“Rik Roberts, a professional corporate comedian and keynote speaker worked with Williamson Inc. to spearheaded a YP “Improv” Night where we learned through guided exercises with Rik how to be better listeners, conflict resolution, and teamwork skills. We had a blast and everyone was laughing all night. Everyone walked away with new perspective that they felt they could use in their work lives. I highly recommend switching up a chamber luncheon and trying something like this out.”

Mayberry Method Rik Roberts

“Rik Roberts presented the “Mayberry Method” to our group.  He was very well received by all level of employees.  Not one person, in the audience of 190, lost interest during the 90 minutes he “entertained” and educated our group.  We even had an added bonus of unexpected interaction of an official Kansas Highway Patrol Officer that assisted in his great message of how to react/respond when in an unusual or difficult situation.  Many employees have requested to have him back again!

Rik Roberts Corporate Speaker

Rik made our annual conference!We tied in our TitlePAC fundraiser into his act and Rik was so accommodating! We also had problems with audio visual presentation but Rik didn’t miss a bit. Attendees commented that his comedy was hilarious but there was substance in his presentation on eliminating distractions in the work place.

Rik is a pro in every sense of the way and a great comedic talent. I recommend Rik whole-heartedly! Thanks so much, Rik!!
